Book Printing

UK’s best price and quality

Light. Robust. Unputdownable. Paperback books, bound to last.

Easy to pick up. Hard to put down. Paperback books are made to be read. But they’re also often tossed into suitcases, shoved into pockets, and enjoyed on trains, planes, and sunloungers. It’s important that they maintain their integrity, so that their stories can be told.

Choose from our range of binding options (perfect bound or stapled), paper types and weights, and trim sizes to make sure your epic sci-fi tale or windswept romance novel stays in one piece.

I’d give these guys infinite stars if I could! Actual customer service is hard to find these days but the team at maxim were fantastic (as I had made a small blunder on what I requested) they didn’t just go ahead and print, they called me up, I spoke to an ACTUAL HUMAN who was just the most pleasant person and they run through whether I was okay to go ahead. Then on to the quality of the product. PERFECT! Thank you so much!

I've used Mixam twice and both times were excellent. They are super fast, and sent me high quality products. The second time I ordered I talked to customer service to sort out a design question and they were extremely friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend.
Highly, highly recommended!

Highly, highly recommended! I honestly could not recommend the guys at Mixam enough! I had a somewhat complicated couple of production runs to complete. Despite a number of issues and problems (of my doing!) Spencer and Brandon were incredibly patient, helpful and professional throughout. They went over and above the call of duty and were genuinely fantastic to deal with - thank you! Thanks to them, the end result of both projects was absolutely spot on. In addition, I'd like to add that the actual quality of the print and finish is very, very good and very reasonably priced. Will definitely use them for future projects.
Great printing service!

I use Mixam for a lot of printing and they always deliver. The quality is great and they have a wide variety of papers and weights to decide from. Fantastic customer service too, Nicky runs through my files with me everytime I order so there are no issues with the files that might delay the process. Thank you!

This is not the first time we as a company have used them, but me as an employee of the company have used Mixam and I am pleasantly surprised. Really competitive pricing, really great customer services, really swift responses. I cannot thank them enough for supporting me through ordering 90 newsletter brochures, and for making them so nice looking! I cannot wait to use them again.

Really excellent service. Quick, accurate and efficient and they really cared about printing the best possible product. Lucian from the Mixam team especially helped me understand things I needed to change and add as it was my first time printing to a deadline. Thank you so much again, will be using mixam again.

Info for file setup

Paperback book print
file setup information

How to supply your print files
You can supply your files in a way that suits you - as single pages or spreads, individual files for each page, or as a single combined file.
Important - your cover
Your cover is made up of four pages - a front cover, an inside front cover, a back cover, and an inside back cover.
We ask for a 3mm bleed on all paperback books. Please do not include any important content within this area.
Format and orientation
You can choose either an A4 (210 x 297 mm) or A5 (148 x 210 mm) format, and a landscape or portrait orientation.
The binding options available for paperback books are perfect bound or stapled. For books with fewer than 25 pages, we recommend printing as a booklet.
Please note:
These available binding options are entirely dependent upon the number of pages and paper weight selected for your order. This is because there comes a point where the combined paper thickness is too much to effectively staple or stitch together, and will instead need to be held together by adhesive (otherwise known as ‘perfect binding’).

The opposite is true if there are too few pages for perfect binding to work. Our dynamic ordering system is smart enough to know when a limit has been reached, and will automatically switch to the required binding option.

Spine (for Perfect Binding)
If you choose perfect binding you have the option to upload the spine as a separate print file. The spine depth is calculated and displayed in the shopping cart. If you do not upload a print file for your spine it will be left blank.
The spine will also need a 3mm bleed at the top and bottom.
Completing your order
Before you can complete your order, you must make sure all page placeholders have been completed. For example, if you are ordering 32 pages, all 32 boxes must be filled. If you do not have enough content, you must add blank pages.
